So Long American Idol Season 8

american-idol

I watched most of the American Idol audition shows this year. I love the auditions! And I gave Hollywood Week a shot… and it was fun. But after last nights show, I’m out. I’ll come back in a few weeks when the quality of musicians starts to shine through. It’s one thing to have the occasional bad singing… and they had that covered last night. (The woman who went first probably killed their ratings; horrible outfit; she butchered that song. Someone please tell the 95 pound woman she can’t pull off an Aretha Franklin song, need I go on?) But I’ve seen and heard enough to know that they are merely hyping the “most talented group ever.” And the judge who is Paula’s stand-in just in case Paula falls off the wagon one more time… she was a complete Paula Abdul clone last night! What exactly did she add to the panel?

I’ll be back for the finale. But I don’t think I can sweat it out all season with this cast.

Then again, there isn’t a lot else on so I’ll probably just whine and watch next week. Yeah, who am I kidding? I have a love-hate relationship with the show.

And I voted for Danny Gokey 25 times before going to bed. Man, that guy can sing.

  1. Dude, I was all excited when I saw you hda a photo of Ricky Braddy up … and then you voted for someone else? Oh well …

    He’s actually a family friend. My brother-in-law used to be a part of a four guy gospel group and he was one of the four – sang at our church and everything. I voted more last night than I did the previous seven season combined (not necessarily saying a lot – I didn’t vote once in season seven)!

  2. Hey Adam, you know you’re gonna keep watching this thing – you’re married! That’s what married guys do! Anyway, yeah Danny Gokey is awesome. It would be worth it just to see him win. Hope you are doing well man!
